Top knit tips

Pin the hedgehog head into position to keep it secure before sewing into place.

In this pattern it’s important to keep track of which number row you’re on. Your purl rows are on the right side when working the bobble pattern but on the wrong side when working the stocking stitch section of the mittens.
